    Updated: 23 June, 2021:

    This was originally an explanation linked from the header of every page of this site as I started work redeveloping it in 2020. I've turned it into an article and posted it under the date it was first written. I won't be keeping the todo list updated, but it is correct as of June 23, 2021.

    I'm rebuilding my site.

    Take a moment to look at the previous version of it in the wayback machine. Note two things:

    1. I hadn't posted anything since August 2015. And I'm writing this in June 2020, almost five years later.

    2. I had had this idea to collect things such as tweets, Foursquare checkins, instagram posts, etc that otherwise end up invisible and unfindable on the web. That part I hadn't continued with since 2011.

    Also, the site has been offline most of this year after I shut down the host that was serving it.

    Now, with time on my hands and more importantly some degree of motivation (completely missing for most of the Covid-19 lockdown) I'm going to reimplement my site.

    I still like the idea of collecting some of those things, but definitely not all.

    And I have more words to write.
